Parts of the county are at risk of flooding, say the Met Office.

The UK is set for lashings of rain over the run-up to Christmas, and forecasters have warned the heavy rain could lead to "flooding and travel disruption in places".

The Met Office state on their website that parts of east Scotland near Perth and Dundee will likely experience delays or cancellations when it comes to train and bus services from today all through until the start of the weekend where it'll hopefully cease on Saturday morning.
